Look for the label near seven works of art in Sound Vision that connect with our Academic Focus Gallery, located near the museum classrooms.

The Academic Focus Gallery features an installation of works in the collection inspired by Duke’s summer reading selection, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The book is available in the Nasher Museum Store.
Seven Days in the Art World
Join us in August for two book discussions on Seven Days in the Art World by Sarah Thornton. She takes the reader on a behind the scenes tour of the contemporary art world. Each of the seven chapters portrays a different ‘day in the life’ of characters in various careers in the industry. With a background in sociology, author Sarah Thornton captures the motivations and subtleties behind what occurs in the artist’s studio, the auction house, and everywhere in between.

Wednesday, August 6, 11 AM, and Sunday, August 10, 2 PM, at the Nasher Museum. Visitors are encouraged to read the book prior to the discussions. Seven Days in the Art World is available for purchase in the Nasher Museum Store.
